Sony A7r4 Settings Dogs in Action

After posting images of Daisy and Megan the Wippets i wanted to share the camera settings.

My Settings

  • RAW
  • F6.3
  • 1/3200-4000
  • Auto ISO from 100-2000
  • High Speed Burst Plus
  • Metering Multi
  • Focus Area Zone.
  • Tracking 5 Responsive
  • Menu Settings
  • DRO off

The settings are for Birds in Flight also and I assign the left button on the 200-600 for this type of photography.

As I sain in the previous post the Hit rate or Keeper rate was %100 not one image was out of focus.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
